LOI season 2018


#601

0-0 at half time at stadium of light between Pats and Sligo.
Pats have had the better of first half, but only for fine save by Barry Murphy could have been behind.
Double League of Ireland Celeb spot:
Brian Kerr and super fan Tom the Gom


#602

Pats win 2-0
Dean Clarke and Thomas Byrne penalty.
Pats are very enjoyable to watch this year.
Oh when the Saints…


#603

Lovely evening for game in Stadium of Light.
Expecting good game between Pats and Derry


#604

What a first half Pats lead 3-2.
Derry took lead after mix up (or “fuck -acting as a wise man behind me called it) in Pats defense trying to play the ball out .
Jake Keegan with a well taken equalizer.
Derry take lead with deflected shot.
Derry keeper starts time wasting after 25mins, drawing a good natured torrent of foul language from the faithful.
Conan Byrne equalized with penalty conceded by aforementioned keeper who got booked for his troubles.
Kevin Toner (why did I back 1st scorer instead of anytime) with a header from corner just before half time
there will be a red (for a second booking) card in this.
Suspect Kenny Shiels is going nuts at half time.
You would want your head examined to want to be a linesman - non stop abuse.


#605

Pats run out 5-2 winners
5th goal by Darragh Markey was excellent.

Looks like a crazy night in the RSC.


#606

Congrats to Graham Burke of Shamrock Rovers and Shane Supple of Bohs on their call ups to the Irish senior squad for the friendlies against France and USA. Great for the league to have 2 players involved, hopefully both get caps.


#607

+1 to all that
funny hearing the dope who presents Game On calling Graham Burke a striker ,
Burke is not a striker as we all know , just a very effective attacking wide midfielder whose strength is cutting in from the left to unleash a rocket ( Mlad Boleslav last year was classic Burke)
the ignorance of RTE towards LOI is astounding- there is a core bunch of angry LOI journos who scramble and retweet each others shite but at least they cover and know the game, unlike Damien O Meara and Frehill

Supple is a fine keeper as well, presume he is still playing Gah with St Brigids


#608

Bray players not paid today…


#609

Lennon and Markey drop to bench.
Looks like Pats setting up to try keep it tight.


#610

Cork awarded penalty after no more than 15 seconds.
Sadlier scores 0-1.


#611

Cork lead by only goal at half time.
Even enough since early goal.
A Cork goal from set piece looks most likely source of 2nd goal


#612

Fuck off Bradley


#613

1-3 harsh on Pats.
Cork are very unlikeable.


#614

I’m not trying to be smart or having a pop, but how is Bradley surviving this?


#615

No idea

He looks like he is turning it around and then a shot result happens


#616

Why?


#617

They win nearly all of their matches mate


#618

Ya that’s annoying for sure.

But I would like an outside perspective

City as a club is one of the friendliest and most inclusive sporting organisations I ever encountered. Such a family club and so hard working and genuinely community based. They have a very largely great and respectful travelling support.

Now if it’s the way they play then understandable.


#619

Lolzers


#620

I should have clarified, it’s their style of play.

Their fans were singing from start to finish, and brought decent crowd up as well in fairness to them.
